    Hello all My e46 almost left me stranded yesterday. I have a 2002 330i sedan with the SMG (SSG) gearbox. Yesterday I parked for 10 minutes going into a store, when I came back and tried to start it I ran into some issues. It would turn to first and second ignition just fine but as soon as I...

    Hi fellow money pit enthusiasts, I've been trawling the forum for months trying to find a solution to a persistent SSG issue on my 330ci 5 speed. When I've been sat in traffic or driving on a hot day, my gearbox will be very slow to shift and engages with a VERY violent thud. On several...

    Battery was weak (I had to start using battery pack) but it had been stored on battery tender for awhile and I just looked suspiciously at the tender and didn't think anything more of it, travelled ~20 km and parked, had to start with battery pack (had to sit for a few minutes with pack...

    Hi All, Long time lurker, first time poster. I have been having some issues with my 2002 e46 m3 with the SMG that I am hoping someone might have encountered. One day I got to work and left my car in neutral, and when I went back to move it; it wouldn't go into gear. I tried to restart the car...

    Hello, first post here! I’ve got a 2004 BMW e46 M3 with an SMG. When attempting to shift into fourth gear (when RPM is relatively high) the gearbox will make a noticeable clunk or pop noise. When driving slow this is not an issue. I’ve already changed out the compression springs which made no...

    Hey, so my pump just went out took it to BMW, and got charged 1200 just to look at it 😔. Guy told me it was 9 grand for them to do it, he said to take it to a speed shop and look at a manual conversion. So everywhere else they charge like 6 Grand on the east coast around NY. I would just get...

    Having a problem with my E46 M3 SMG. Car starts perfectly fine, can go to neutral/reverse with no problem. But, when shifting up from second gear to the third, it just doesn't work. No codes are thrown, no lights are thrown. Can anyone help diagnose the issue? Changed the hood latches, relay...

    My 2004 M3 convertible with SMG is driving me crazy. 85k miles on it. I can't get it to shift from neutral into any gear (R, 1, or 2). Strange thing is when the car is off and I pull out the key it dings at me because it's in neutral and will let me shift to 1. Put it back in neutral, start it...

    I have an e46 m3 and I've heard that having a tune will definitely enhance the experience especially since my m3 is an SMG. The prices for those tunes seem to range quite widely ($99 for B-Journal and like 300 + for ttfs?) so what do you guys suggest getting? Also, since I live in California...

    Car is a 2004/4 E46 M3 with new Slave cylinder, Electric motor and Gear position sensor. I had just replaced my pressure plate and clutch, due to a previous faulty pressure plate. After putting everything back together I went to start the car but it doesn't want to shift. I read codes which...

    So my 2003 330i SSG has been having this issue for over 3 years since I bought the car and no mechanic can find the solution. It’s a bit complicated to explain the problem, because my first language is not english, so I made a youtube video with english subtitles. VIDEO e46 330i smg problem The...

    So I took my 2006 BMW M3 with SMG to Josh at HMB Motorwerks in Sacramento based on past good reviews when my car would not start and shift at all and the yellow SMG cogwheel of death came on. I read codes that showed low to no hydraulic pressure. Car would sometimes start and shift and it is not...
